From the Publisher
Annotation Real estate leads to a wealth of intrigues, affairs, and romances in Madeleine Wickham's addictively readable A DESIRABLE RESIDENCE. Wickham (who, under her Sophie Kinsella pseudonym, launched the SHOPAHOLIC chick-lit juggernaut) creates a delightfully daffy cast of characters whose plots and motivations collide in unexpected ways. Broke and immoral, Liz is so desperate to sell her house that she has an affair with a sleazy realtor, Marcus, to help close the deal. After she finally rents the house to a young couple, Liz, her husband Jonathan, their teenage daughter, and Marcus all become caught up in a series of lies, schemes, and real estate dreams.
